God is love. If we keep on loving others, we will stay one in our hearts with God, and he will stay one with us. If we truly love others and live as Christ did in this world, we won’t be worried about the day of judgment. A real love for others will chase those worries away. The thought of being punished is what makes us afraid. It shows that we have not really learned to love. We love because God loved us first. But if we say we love God and don’t love each other, we are liars. We cannot see God. So how can we love God, if we don’t love the people we can see? The commandment that God has given us is: “Love God and love each other!”
1 John 4:16-21
Love is not something God does. Love is what God is! The Love of God pours from His presence to everyone who is able to come near Him. Everyone who enters the human race is an object of the love of God, because He is the Creator of everyone!
Remember that Jesus loves and died for the most horrible sinners who ever lived. The love of God is not based on the righteousness of those who receive that love.
God loves because that is His nature, and when we become like Him we will love like He does.
Remember, you cannot love one person and hate everyone else because love is who you are not what you do! If you become like Jesus you will love others, even if those that you love have declared themselves to be your enemy.
"Lord Jesus, I want to love like You do. Change me into a person who is love, so that I can love like God! And may You be praised forever. Amen."
